10am on Wednesday 11th to after lunch on Friday 13th October 2023
A two-night Retreat for those who have recently retired from full time ministry. We will explore the transition from work based ministry to retirement ministry, what ever that might mean for you.
We will not be offering solutions or pat answers to the varied responses we have to this challenging time of life. We hope to offer a safe space for reflection on our own experience, exploring our deeper feelings about the transition, sharing our stories with others, in large and small group contexts, so as to learn from and encourage each other. There will also be opportunity for one-to-one conversation with experienced Spiritual Accompaniers.
We will worship sometimes with the gathered community of the college and sometimes as a small group. There will be space to reflect and create with art resources provided for you.
The retreat will be co-led by Rev. Philip Mader-Grayson, recently retired Baptist minister and experienced Spiritual Director, and Rev Andrew Meynell, long retired Anglican Priest and facilitator of contemplative retreats.
